    In Windows 8.1, I’m puzzled with the number format in Excel 2013. I write 24000 and the cell shows 240, or I write 10 and the cell shows 0.1

    The format cells / number does not have anything to change the format to see the number I type

    How can I change the numbers format to see what I write?

    is the format set to general - or custom?
    perhaps load a sample sheet here showing the issue

    I solved the problem. In the options / Advanced I had ticked the "Automatically insert a decimal point". removing the tick now my numbers are displayed as I type
    Thanks.
